VIDA Student Clubs

Welcome to VIDA!

We are a Magnet School serving students in Grades 6-8.

The theme of our school is to nourish the creative thinking skills of students and approach learning through the highly renowned Design Thinking process that will empower students to take what they have learned and apply those skills to create non-traditional solutions to yesterday's, today's, and tomorrow's problems.

We provide this design approach for innovation through:

STEM, Humanities, Creative Arts, Wellness, Electives
